Hey, nice stack!

We’ve talked about stacked frames before. A stacked frame is a design involving two or more frames put together to create a truly custom look. When the proper frames are chosen, they no longer look like separate frames, but an entirely new frame of its own. Recently, our Shrewsbury staff did a job that is definitely one of the most impressive combinations we’ve ever seen. It’s three Roma frames and a fillet on the inside edge. Roma is a line of beautiful, hand-finished Italian frames we offer. We asked the staff about how this design came about.

“Well that Tabacchino stack was amazingly sold on art from Home Goods. It’s some very generic artist’s image, reproduced and canvas stretched. We’ve actually framed a lot of stuff of theirs from Home Goods. Just a flavor of the month in the reproductions world, but people eat it up! As for the customer, she just loved it! Nothing sentimental, not a vacation bargain, just something that caught her eye. She was hanging it in a formal living room with high ceilings, over a very large fireplace. She loved the image, and thought it would be perfect in that room. She had dimensions she was trying to bring the size up to, so we started showing her stack combinations right away to meet her vision. (It was already oversized as it was too!) She just fell in love with that Roma stack. She got so involved in the design with stacking and trying fillets that she actually came up with the idea for the black fillet herself. She was thrilled with the way it turned out!”

Assistant manager Chris approves! Way to go, guys!
